- Annual Appeal
Once again in our 46th year we were able to give out $12,000 in Scholarships to eight deserving students. In total we have reached a $395,500 in scholarship awards. This is a remarkable achievement for our organization and one we want to continue to build on. Our objective is to carry on and enhance our annual support to these deserving student athletes.
Many members have given in the past and are a part of the 100 Club, 500 Club, 1,000 Club, or 5,000 Club. This means they have donated this amount of money to the E Club in all their years with the Club. Now is your time to begin your pledge or upgrade to the next level. Help the E Club give out another $12,000 worth of scholarships this year to more deserving students.
